Software Testing is a process of analysis whether a system or a product complies with needs of customer requirements. It is mainly performed by testing team using different tools and techniques and the main target is to identify different behavior in the software project and to make sure quality. Generally testing is not done completely, instead it focuses on different test stages in testing like Unit, Integration, System, User Acceptance etc., and before launching it to the real world testing confirms the performance of the product. Testing also prevents product failure or wastage of cost. Access the quality of the final product delivered to the customer is the main aim of testing. Different phases of Testing life cycle focuses on – Test plan, Test design, Test execution, Defect reporting and tracking it to closure etc., test designing is writing of test cases based on requirements are the main blocks of testing. Very crucial in this testing life cycle is writing effective test cases in minimum time period. Criticality and risks is a key task of tester to sequence the test cases based on the priority of test case generation. Proposed methodology is to improve the detection of fault at the earlier phase like planning. This methodology provides the sequential order in as per the dependency of modules. In this paper we mainly identifying the modules along with cyclic blocks to be tested in sequence during the planning phase and prioritize this with OATS techniques and dependency structure.

In this manuscript, the hybrid technique based on optimal location and the capacity of UPFC to improve the dynamic stability of the power system are proposed. The proposed hybrid technique is the joint execution of both the Improved Fruitfly Algorithm (IFA) and Crow Search Algorithm (CSA) and hence it is said to be as IFCSA. Here, the searching behavior of the fruit flies is enhanced by the crossover and mutation technique and hence it is termed as improved FA (IFA) technique. The novelty of the proposed hybrid technique is exemplified in the improved searching ability and reduced complexity. In this regard, the generator fault affects the dynamic stability of the system constraints such as voltage, power loss, real and reactive power. IFA technique optimizes the maximum power loss line as the UPFC suitable location. By using the CSA, the affected location parameters and dynamic stability constraints are restored into secure limits using the UPFC optimum capacity and accordingly the CSA reduces the UPFC cost. The attained UPFC capacity has been located in the affected location and the system power flow is analyzed. The proposed hybrid technique is implemented in the MATLAB/Simulink platform and tested under standard bench mark system. The proposed method performance is evaluated by comparison with various existing techniques such as ABCGSA and FOAPSO algorithms. The comparison results invariably prove the proposed hybrid technique effectiveness and confirm its potential to solve the related issues.

In this paper, the main emphasis is on reviewing the different types of optimization techniques proposed on the different axis of rotation of the robotic arms. The optimization depends on the various parameters of the robotic arm for the movement and the end-effectors. For a small change in the movement of the source to the destination, several variables will give rise to changes in the accuracy and efficiency of the robotic arm. Various parameters like forward and inverse kinematics analysis, position error, joint displacements, velocity, acceleration, energy, path planning and obstacle avoidance etc. have been optimized using different various optimization techniques on different degrees of freedom robotic manipulators. Some Evolutionary algorithms such as Ant colony optimization, Bacterial foraging optimization, Artificial bee colony, Firefly algorithm, and Grey wolf optimization have been discussed.

The purpose of this study is to examine the construct validity and reliability of subjective well-being variables and analyze the components and indicators that can form subjective well-being variables. Subjective well-being is measured by two components, namely life satisfaction and affect. The subjects in this study were 60 online motorcycle taxi partners operating in Yogyakarta. The method of data collection uses a scale of subjective well-being. Data in this study were analyzed using Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) SmartPLS 3.2.8 with reflective constructs through CFA 2nd Order. Based on the results of the analysis of the construct validity and the construct reliability, the components and indicators that form subjective well-being on the online motorcycle taxi partner are declared valid and reliable. This shows that all components and indicators that exist are able to reflect and form subjective well-being. Thus the model can be accepted because the theory that describes subjective well-being is in accordance with the empirical data obtained.

This study aims to find out how students' reflective abstraction can be indentified in the process of learning mathematics. Research design uses descriptive qualitative research. The study involves 36 students as research subjects. Data validation uses data triangulation and method triangulation. Research results: reflective abstraction students can more easily appear and be known by using and demonstrating apperception in the learning process; in the learning process in class if the concept has been conveyed directly by the teacher, the reflective abstraction of the student can still be known by giving feedback in the form of asking students about the opposite concept as long as it does not violate the existing concept; by being given a test in the form of questions that represent students' knowledge of the concepts before and continuing about new concepts to be learned by students; by conducting interviews that can be carried out during the learning process or after the learning process is carried out in order to confirm what cannot be observed directly. The two parts of reflective abstraction can be identified in the same way, but only different types of questions are adapted to the parts of each reflective abstraction. The first reflective abstraction part is focused on how students construct new mathematical concepts according to them, while the second reflective abstraction is how students build new concepts in order to solve mathematical problems.

Days are getting obsolete wherein passivity is considered as the supreme weapon of heroism. Long-suffering and tolerance towards hatred and love are seldom seen in today’s society. Media – be it news channels or films or any other commercial entertainments – started focussing on numerous violent behaviours found in the society. Even this violence is seen in two phases. One is the type of violence projected by the wicked ones of society and another type is of the ones who want to bring peace and justice by using it as a weapon to fight back evil. When such horrific or gory details of the violence acted out by the evil minded people through media it automatically creates a humongous terror among the people. People are thrown into a state where they no longer find society harmless. They tend to walk with fright and horror. This creates suspicion to everyone around them. So, in an act of defensive mechanism they even violently attack people whom they are suspicious of, out of fright. This article tries to show how media can even be preaching violence knowingly or unknowingly by influencing young minds by exposing them continually to violence described in its nakedness.

The pattern of patron-client relationships in fishing communities in the Aru islands district can be seen from the closeness of fishermen to the capital owners, ranging from fishing operational costs to the costs for fishermen's daily needs. In other words, this pattern is intertwined in the community there between fishermen and the owners of fishing enterprises. This study tried to understand and analyzed the pattern of the patron-client relationship between fishermen (workers) and the skipper. To gain these objectives, the data collection techniques were successfully carried out including interviews conducted with the fishermen, fishing area observations and focus group discussions before conducting a descriptive analysis. The findings of the study were found regarding the pattern of patron-client relations between fishermen and fishermen intertwined in economic and non-economic aspects. The economic-client financial relationship was established in the form of assistance costs as capture operational capital. In return for fishermen, they supplied fish to catch marketing to the owner of the skipper capital. Non-economically, client-relations were protected in the form of loans to fishermen who wanted to work without funds. In addition, the patron-client relationship established through the relationship between the fishermen and the skipper started from access to employment opportunities. This relationship was an economic network established to gain access and access for fishermen without capital.

Art has entered the education area and has its own function for the education. Art education aims to provide students with experience and knowledge of art. Art as one of the cultural products that was born from the community, of course, contains the values held by the community, one of which is ethical values. In the world of Education, through the experience gained in Education, it is expected that the ethical values in the barongan show can be transferred to the younger generation so that value conservation can occur. The purpose of this study was to determine the value conservation process in education through Barongan. The results showed that the process of value conservation occurred at the stages of appreciation and expression in art education. Ethical values that appear in barongan performances are divided into two, namely positive ethics and negative ethics. Art education provides knowledge for students to be able to take positive ethics as an example in everyday life, and know the negative ethics that must be avoided in life. The positive ethics that appears in barongan art is the character of barongan characters who are willing to sacrifice to help others. Positive ethical values also appear in the performance process such as politeness and mutual cooperation. The negative ethics that appears in the barongan show is the character likes to disturb other people who emerge from the animal characters as a symbol of the bathara kala. In art education, students are given the knowledge and reinforcement that this negative ethic needs to be avoided in life.

Developments of teachers are continuously attempted to fulfil the need for competencies so that they can be acknowledged in 21st-century life. However, the implementation of education has not been optimal to improve the quality of Indonesian human resources as mandated in the national education system law. The development of teacher competencies in the form of supervision is more on the administrative aspects and less on the professional/academic aspects; it requires an innovative coaching model which is relevant to the needs of the teacher. The purpose of this study is to develop a teacher competency development model based on the scientific approach. Its method is Research and Development. The research procedure includes the Preliminary Study, Model Development, and Model Test. Data collection technique uses observation, documentation, questionnaires, portfolios, and interviews. The data analysis technique uses descriptive statistics. The results of the study can be used as an alternative solution to the problem of weak teacher competencies/teacher performance. The research findings show that generally the coaches still use a top-down instruction, coaching focuses more on administrative aspects and the lack of face to face meeting between supervisors and teachers. This study is expected to benefit the user community and can improve the quality of education.

Hear rate variability (HRV) is a noninvasive measure for evaluating a physiological response that takes place in the body, which is regulated by the autonomic nervous system (ANS) for a short-term HRV recording, mostly 5 min of data length. Among HRV parameters, frequency components obtained by Fourier transform (FT) have been widely used in clinical applications. However, discrete FT that can classify the strength of frequency components is limited due to discretizing the frequency, resulting in a technically spectral leakage and missing values of the in-between frequency. In this study, a new method for calculating a power spectrum using the overlapping segment is proposed to create a smooth spectrum between frequency boundaries, which divides three frequency components: very low frequency, low frequency, and high frequency. A power spectrum on average calculated from six overlapping segments generated by shifting the 2 min 30 s segment forward every 30 s for the 5-minute dataset showed the best smooth curve of a power spectrum than other segments. A compensation factor was found to minimize the difference between power spectra obtained by 5 min and six 2 min 30 s overlapping segments. The results suggest that a newly proposed method based on overlapping segments would be very useful in calculating a power spectrum to minimize an abrupt change at the frequency boundaries.

Multispectral and panchromatic images are the outcomes of optical satellite technology. Because of the different levels in spatio-spectral resolutions, they can also be regarded as spectrally-superior-spatially-inferior-resolution image and spatially-superior-spectrally-inferior-resolution image respectively. When acquired for the same geographic scenario, the fusion of these two images is also referred to as ‘Pansharpening’. It has emerged as a promising solution to fulfill the demand of simultaneous high levels of spatio-spectral resolutions in remote sensing imagery. Continuous attempts while proposing different approaches to produce efficient fused image are reported in literature. The approaches are mostly differentiated based on way of spatial detail extraction from panchromatic image and its injection to multispectral image. In this paper, we propose to use morphological half-gradient for the first task and iterative regression approach at high resolution for the second one. The performance measurement is carried out on two real datasets made available by Deimos-2 and IKONOS satellite sensors using low- and high-resolution evaluation techniques. The performance analysis involves comparison with the most recent algorithms. With respect to the evaluated quality metrics, the proposed algorithm proves to be the best among others.

Entity linking is a task of extracting information that links the mentioned entity in a collection of text with their similar knowledge base as well as it is the task of allocating unique identity to various entities such as locations, individuals and companies. Knowledge base (KB) is used to optimize the information collection, organization and retrieval of information. Heterogeneous information networks(HIN) comprises of multiple-type interlinked objects are interconnected with various types of relationships which have becomes increasingly most popular named are bibliographic networks, social media networks which includes the typical relational database data. The entity linkage determines the corresponding entities from unstructured web text, in the existing HIN. This work is the most challenging and important due to its ambiguity and existing limited knowledge. Some HIN could be considered as a domain-specific KB. The current Entity Linking systems aimed towards corpora which contain heterogeneous as web information and it performs sub-optimally on the domain specific corpora. The EL systems used one or more general or specific domains for linking such as DBpedia, Wikipedia, IMDB and Word net. This model framework presents a model on domain specific entity linking with HIN. This model framework describes the advantages and disadvantages of exiting methods along with its outcomes.

Water is the main need for any kind of living things. The main source of the water on earth is Sea water. We have fresh water lakes and rivers around the world for drinking purpose, but the scarcity of water came in to existence in 20th century. Therefore, we need to use sea water, which is very plenty around the world, but presently the sea water is not used for drinking purpose. So, we need to convert the salt water in to fresh water for drinking purpose. There are many ways to convert salt water in to fresh water. The converting of salt water in to fresh water, we need more amounts of any type of sources like fuels, solar etc. This paper represents a water purification technique using solar energy named as solar desalination.

Cognitive motivation is a theory of motivation that states that behavior is an active result of the analysis and processing of available information, rather than an innate and mechanical set of rules that the mind uses to respond to situations. The theory assumes that behavior is based on a process of thought rather than on a preprogrammed set of mental instructions. The term cognition refers to any process of thought, and motivation is the activation of behavior or action. There are two different forms of cognitive motivation, intrinsic and extrinsic motivation. Intrinsic motivation refers to tasks that are rewarding in and of themselves, such as the pleasure of solving a puzzle, learning, or playing a game. The motivating factors for taking such actions are not external but internal. Extrinsic motivation is the opposite and involves engaging in a task because of external factors.

There is a critical situation waiting for our future generation about the consumption of all the resources of globe to produce electricity that our planet took billions of years to create. Over a short duration of shut down or an on-demand power source to supplement a renewable energy system, crude oil based engine-driven generators can provide a viable technological solution. The ICE generator is a mature technology that has been employed with great success the world over. Indeed, it is arguable that this success and the ubiquitous nature of the technology have led directly to many of the environmental crises facing our planet today. Nevertheless, the disadvantages of the engine-driven generator are many, and in some applications, it is the appropriate technology for the job. Even today, the major power source of automobile is crude oil based ICE which are need to be changed gradually by an alternative source of energy.

This paper aims to explore the use of Visual Inertial Odometry (VIO) for tracking and measurement. The evolution of VIO is first discussed, followed by the overview of monocular Visual Odometry (VO) and the Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU). Next, the related measurement approaches and the use of VIO for measurement have also been discussed. Visual Inertial Odometry is the combination of IMU in the VO system in which the visual information and inertial measurements are combined to achieve an accurate measurement. The algorithm of VO system contains four components, which are camera calibration algorithm, the feature tracker algorithm (usually the KLT algorithm), the rigid motion estimation algorithm, and the algorithm that matches a description of the features points (typically RANSAC algorithm). The IMU is the combination of accelerometer, gyroscopes and magnetometer that measures the linear and angular motion. To fuse the visual and inertial measurements data, there are two different approaches based on when and how they were fused. Tightly coupled and loosely coupled are the approaches for when the measurements are fused, while filtering and optimization based are the approaches for how they were fused. Studies on related measurement approaches can be summarized as three methods which are using the time-of-flight camera, dual cameras (stereovision), or the single camera known as monovision. This review shows that the technique that utilizes the VIO to get visual information and inertial motion has been used widely for measurement lately especially for the field related to Augmented Reality.

To manage drainage water, most important and useful method is to re use this water. We are going to implement this system to reuse of maximum drainage water. For short and long terms need, it is necessary to avoid the waste of water. In some regions, percentage of rain is minimum, in such areas; reuse of drainage water is most important and useful method. According to the quality of drainage water, the water should be distributed to the crops which should be irrigated. For salt sensitive crop it is not possible to do the reuse of drainage water. For salt sensitive crops and trees, purified drainage water should be reused. If this project is located near the wetland at that time we can reuse of drainage water for that wetland. However, in this system we have to take precautions of leaving things in the water. Leaving things in water such as fish and other insects should get harmful because of the drainage water so that at the time of implementation of this system we have to take care of such things. In this system, we are proposing a system which consists of water level point contact sensor, solenoid valve, Wi-Fi module, Arudino microcontroller. This system detects the water level of drainage and transmits it to the necessary irrigation area.

Over past few years, Automatic Face Recognition (AFR) have seen a huge performance improvement and this technology is now widely used in almost all commercial and security applications. It is now dragging its concentration on several automatic attendance system. Maintaining attendance is mandatory and important in all the institutions. In olden days, manual method of taking the attendance by a staff was carried out which especially needs more time and man power. To make this process automatized, Biometric attendance system emerged with marking the attendance through the fingerprints of the students. Although it is better than the manual method, it fails in the fact that it makes the students stand in a long queue which is again time consuming.Face recognition is also available in the same biometric module, it is used for analysing individuals only which still needs huge time. The proposed system gives an efficient way to automatically recognize the faces of the students and maintain attendance database based on their presence in a real time background. The results have shown improved behaviour over manual attendance system with a higher accuracy. It also tends to highly increase the security of the attendance management system.

Precast interlocking concrete paver blocks are used in immense extent and its demand is increasing day by day for creating the pavement or for exterior flooring. But largely paver blocks are cast using concrete, in which cement is the binder. But it is an energy absorbing product which consumes more energy during its all phases of production process and it gives out great volume of carbon di-oxide (CO2) to the outside environment causing serious treat on the atmosphere. Thus there is needful to minimize the usage of cement or to find the other possible binding agent which is eco friendly. In the other hand large quantity of agro- industrial wastes are getting accumulated which is simply burnt or dumped in a place as a result of which environmental problems are rising and the valuable lands are getting turned into dumping yards. Only little percentage of these wastes is being used for various purposes. The materials which can improve the performance of the building elements can be effectively used in the construction field, thus helping to overcome the complications of disposal issues. Hence in this study an effort is made to use locally available laterite soil, rice husk ash and areca husk fiber to make paver blocks which is then stabilized using some percentage of cement. Further its performance is enhanced by usage of SBR latex. The pavers were cast and tested for compressive strength, abrasion resistance and water absorption. The mixture of soil with 20% replacement of rice husk ash and 0.4% addition of areca husk fiber by the weight of soil and ash, with addition of 30% cement and constant 2% latex showed satisfactory results.

Plastic waste has been a primary environmental concern nowadays due to the increase in its consumption. It is a chemical compound manufactured by adding various chemicals and toxic agents. It is a known fact and at the same time, hard truth that plastic is non-biodegradable, and it causes multiple hazards to the environment and the living beings. Improper disposal of plastic leads to soil pollution, clogging of water on the surface of the earth, death of aquatic species and even more severe impacts on the environment. In our project, segregate the plastic waste without any human intervention. It helps in reducing the man's work, and it also makes the segregation process easier. The only way to eliminate the adverse effects of plastic waste is to recycle it properly such that the amount of waste is reduced and recycled material can be remade as useful plastic products. The plastic products are recycled based on its physical parameters such as size and colour. The process of segregation of plastic based on size and colour is at present is done by labourers at recycling units, which is a prolonged process and also leads to long term health hazards. The slow rates of reuse and recycling, most of them end up in landfills, beaches, oceans and remain there for hundreds of thousands of years.

Synthesis of hybrid functional nanocomposites (PPy-ZnO) was employed with ZnO by mechanical mixing method, this system, the observed FT-IR results ensured the presence of PPy in the composite and also pronounces the characteristic absorption peaks of ZnO around 591 and 438 cm−1. The observed strong vibration in the low wave number region around 591cm−1 is corresponds to antisymmetric vibrations of Zn-O-Zn bond of Zinc oxide. This ensured the presence of ZnO incorporated in the PPy nanoparticles. UV-Vis absorption spectra of PPy-ZnO nanocomposites helps to explore the optical behavior of incorporated nanoparticles into PPy matrix and hence, the integrated ZnO nanoparticles gives rise to the red shift of π–π* transition of polypyrrole. The XRD pattern exhibits the crystalline nature of PPy-ZnO nanocomposite and reveal out the existence of different crystallite sizes observed from diffraction peaks. Thermal stability of both polypyrrole and PPy-ZnO nanocomposite was investigated by thermo gravimetric analysis (TGA) and Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). SEM images reveal that ZnO nanoparticles is deposited on the PPy surface which have a nucleus effect on the polymerization of PPy. It also ensures, the degree of deposition on the surface of PPy increases with ZnO content. SEM images indicated that the zinc particles are embedded in the PPy matrix forming the core-shell structure. ZnO nanoparticles exist as agglomerates due to high surface area and magneto dipole-dipole interactions between the particles. In SEM images, the black core is zinc particles with the diameter range of 50-150 nm and the light colored shell is attributed to PPy in the nanocomposites, which is due to the different electron penetrability. The EDAX results of PPy-ZnO reveals that an elements like Carbon (44.23 wt.%) and Sulfur (3.18 wt.%) molecules decreases and Zinc (23.47 wt.%), Oxygen(29.12 wt.%) molecules increases, while increasing concentration of ZnO nano metal oxide content.

Most modern programming languages support multi-threading, which is commonly required in executing parallel programs in mobile multi-media applications, web-servers and operating systems. Concurrency bugs are common in multi-threaded applications. Bugs like race conditions, data races and deadlocks are some problems which arise out of unsynchronized code but have to capacity to sneak in to large and complex structures and may result in giving unexpected results. Data Race is one such synchronization bug, arising out of unsynchronized code, which can stay hidden even after many rounds of testing, but can emerge as a system destroyer when it surfaces. Researchers, in last four decades have presented various tools to detect data races which are broadly classified into static, dynamic and hybrid categories. In this paper authors have focussed on data races arising in object oriented programming language- java and have presented a study of various research articles subjected towards early detection of data races. Authors hereby present a study of techniques used by different researchers and have tried to summarise the java oriented approaches to solve the problem.

Now-a-days technology has been improving a lot over the Internet and people utilizing the internet are also increasing rapidly. Email has been playing a key role in communication due to its efficiency. E-Mails are said to be the most reliable and most widely used way of communication for sending and receiving official information. But for visually impaired people it is very difficult to use the internet and technology. They cannot see the screen of the computer and cannot use the keyboard. So they cannot access the internet and becomes very difficult to communicate by using the internet. A recent analysis enclosed that there are more than 255million visually challenged people around the world. They even don’t know how to use E-Mail. The only way that they can do is that they have to depend on the third person. This paper mainly aims at introducing a system that will help blind people to use the system without practice. The advantage of this system is that it will not let the user to use a keyboard, since it is difficult to recognize the characters on a keyboard for blind people. It simply works on mouse clicks and interactive voice response which makes very simple and easy to use. [3] Object Detection is locating an object in the frame of Video Sequence. It helps to detect unsuspicious events occurred in public places such as detecting traffic violators. Since the surveillance is done using multiple cameras, the computation power needed is more. One of the solutions to overcome this problem is Cloud Computing based approach. Object detection is done by the one of the most popular and simple technique called background subtraction. Here the Subtraction is parallelized by workflow scheduling mechanisms. Once parallelization is achieved through workflow scheduling computation time is reduced. Hence the object detection time is reduced which is more helpful for most of the Real Time object detection and tracking applications viz video surveillance, Robot Navigation and etc. To optimize the scheduling we go for BAT optimization algorithm which is a Meta heuristic technique.

Neurolaw is an interdisciplinary research program which aims not only to re-examine the axioms of law but also to enrich it in term of methodology and evidence. Although historically there are cases of application of neuroscience in the legal sphere, rapid growth has been recorded only after 1990. The radical debate in the field is between two perspectives i.e. neuroscience will show that we don’t have free will and this will lead to non-assignment of responsibility for actions including legal one and secondly, that neuroscience will show that humans have free will and thus there will be no changes in the legal system. In, this paper we will migrate from these theoretical arguments, to access the infield contribution of neuroscience to the legal system i.e. neurolaw.

Religious nuance conflicts in Ambon became a dark history of the Indonesian nation's historical journey. The development of Ambon in the future is expected to encourage the realization of sustainable peace. However, the construction of peacebuilding is like two sides of one currency, inseparable. Both sides must be complementary and mutually supportive. This situation is similar to the Central Maluku which is currently still in the process of peaceful transition. This study aimed to analyze the principles of peace between two different religious communities in Tanah Hila and Dusun Tanah Hila Putih. To analyze the data, a descriptive qualitative method was used. While for data collection, observation, in-depth interviews, and focused group discussions were successfully done to those communities. The results showed that there were several approaches have been conducted successfully to build sustainable peace. The community events were conducted to unite differences that were carried out by two different faith groups. The family relationships approach has taken to minimized social conflict among the groups. This harmony can be seen as these two different faiths were carrying out Patita meals party, conducting religious social activities, sporting in volleyball competitions, telling fraternal relations between generations, and protecting land ownership rights. To succeed in these efforts, religious leaders played an important role in resolving Maluku conflict issues and caring for peace. Even though religious institutions have not yet done solely to maintain and build peace, the Christian community of Hila Tanah Putih and its religious leaders, however, have given direction to their followers in order to maintain peace and harmony among themselves. Therefore, this study strongly advises that understanding the dynamics of religious as well as the political conflict is very important especially to prevent the possibility of recurring conflict in society. As a multi-ethnic, multi-cultural, and multi-religious state, Indonesia is always haunted by the vulnerability of the threat of conflict with various backgrounds, starting from identity-based, ethno-communal, separatist, separating natural resource access to micro-scale conflicts such as brawls between youth, disputes between residents and so on. Community development plays an important role in maintaining and encouraging sustainable peacebuilding to move in a constructive direction.

Ohmic heating, known as joule heating, can produce heat by flowing electric current through materials that can resist the flow of electricity. The volumetric properties resulting from ohmic heating cause heat to be spread evenly on the material. This method is best for foods containing suspended particulate matter in media containing weak salt. The advantage of ohmic heating in food is demonstrated by its ability to deactivate pathogenic microbes, prevent the decline in functional properties of food, nutritional, and sensory values so that food shelf life increases. However, related to viscosity, electrical conductivity, and fouling deposits are the limitations of ohmic heating. In addition to the inhibition of the microbial and enzyme activity, ohmic heat was also used for the extraction of essential compounds, including various specific processes such as starch gelatinization. This review discusses the ohmic heating, the principles and design of ohmic heating, the factors that influence it, and its use in food.

In the field of Artificial Intelligence, the ensemble learning methodology is a multiple machine learning model algorithm used to acquire a better performance for a disease prediction. Disease prediction through Ensemble learning can be done by using two different datasets such as Diabetes and Cholesterol. The rise of Non-Communicable Diseases (NCD) like Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) and Diabetes in the world is increasing day by day drastically in a very high manner which leads to deaths in several countries. The main aim of ensemble learning is to process datasets on multiple models and then combine all the predictions to get ensemble learning. The ensemble learning algorithm uses five algorithms Adaboost, Random Forest or Randomization, Bagging or Bootstrap Aggregation, Voting, and Stacking. Datasets inputs are supplied to five Ensemble learning algorithms separately to generate five models and combine all the five models to get a final prediction. For combining the classifier model the weighting methods are best suited for the prediction of diseases. Nowadays NCD can affect anyone due to various parameters like irregular food habits, use of tobacco, alcohol consumption, and high glucose levels, physical inactivity, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol, obesity. Cholesterol is one of the major factors for CVD. When the human body could not produce enough insulin or the body cannot utilize the insulin produces then it leads to chronic conditions or Diabetes. Results suggest that the ensemble learning algorithm performs better than an individual algorithm. Results also suggest that key parameters play a major role in the prediction of diseases in diabetes and cholesterol.

Decline in quantity and quality of tea produced by estate sector of Assam, the major tea producing region of the world, paved way for emergence of a new concept since late 70s of the last century. Many educated youth from both urban and rural areas saw tremendous potential in small scale tea cultivation. As of now these (Small Tea Growers) of the state contribute more than 30% of the annual green tea production. Due to growing demand for tea within and outside the state these growers are tempted to adopt certain technology package in order to boost production. Available literature and data shows that chemical/bio-chemical fertiliser, pesticide, HYV clone, irrigation facility and provision of technology are most common element of the technology package adopted by the growers. However some growers restrain themselves from adopting any of these technology elements. Rather they prefer to depend on natural factors like rainfall, organic fertiliser, etc. This research work is a humble attempt to figure out and analyse the major factors which prompt the grower to adopt the above mentioned technology package. Eighty growers, both adopter and non-adopter of the technology package, were selected as sample and data were collected through door to door investigation. For fulfilling the purpose the method of Maximum Likelihood (ML) is used after filling a logistic regression model. According to the statistical results factors other than provision of training are found to be statistically insignificant.

The use of LKPD based on local culture is believed to be one alternative in an effort to introduce local culture to the younger generation. LKPD development is carried out with several steps of activities, namely with the first step of literature and field studies, the second step of preparation and validation and revision, the third step of initial product testing to see the application and revision, and the final step is the trial of the product after revision and improvement if there are revisions then proceed with the reporting stage. The results of the development of LKPD are known cognitive results, one variable is measured to determine student learning outcomes after being treated with a local culture-based LKPD using Banyuwangi as measured using tests after the learning process is complete. In the test questions, there are indicators that represent each integrated subject, namely social studies, PPKN, SbdP, and Indonesian. From the results of tests conducted from the average pretest 76.4 and 85.4 posttest experienced an increase. Thus, it can be concluded that LKPD products based on local culture using Banyuwangi are more appropriate than the old LKPD which is general in nature.

The vehicle emissions are controlled by introducing new techniques like after treatment method and in- cylinder treatment method i.e., RCCI (Reactive controlled compression ignition combustion), PPCI (Partially premixed compression ignition combustion), HCCI (Homogeneous Charge Compression Ignition Combustion), GDCI (Gasoline Direct Injection Compression Ignition) etc., The performance and emissions of SI engine can be improved by modifying the cubic capacity of engine, compression ratio, regulating the flow of air-fuel charge and air fuel ratio. Nowadays due to in-availability of crude oil and import of high level of crude oil to our country makes the fuel consumers to spend more money for fuel consumption. Our government has passed an order to introduce electric vehicle by the year 2020, to the entire vehicle manufacturer in order to reduce pollution, to adhere the BS-VI emission norms and to be free from fuel dependency. So, by considering all the above statements mentioned it is important to concentrate in reducing the vehicle emission and improving fuel economy of an IC engine. In this project, aims to reduce the emission from vehicle, improving fuel economy and performance of engine by injecting hydrogen along with carbureted gasoline in the intake manifold of the SI engine. The hydrogen generation can be achieved by using dry cell electrolysis method. During the injection of hydrogen in the intake manifold, the amount of gasoline supplied for ignition in normal running condition will be reduced and the reduced fuel level will be compensated by hydrogen supply. But the conversion of hydrogen gas into liquid form is a tedious process and a complicated one. To overcome these defects, the hydrogen gas generated from the dry cell is directly feed to the intake manifold along with the gasoline. The hydrogen generation will also be done in moving vehicle by electrolysis of distilled water. In future this will be tested in the GDI (Gasoline Direct Injection)engine with the help of ECU (Electronic Control Unit).

Many of limitations and issues in Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) arise mainly because of the limited availability of energy or processing and storage capacity. Due to this limitation all the operations in the WSN aims at conserving the energy by reducing the consumption in the network and must much of energy is spend in general to send data packets from the cluster heads and receiver station in a cluster-based routing approach. This paper focus on proposing an efficient routing technique aimed at balancing the energy expenditure in the network. The proposed routing approach follows a hybrid routing strategy where a hierarchical clustering scheme divides the network in to clusters and data packets are received by the cluster head from the sensor nodes and then they are forwarded to the base station using a multi-path routing scheme. The sensor nodes belonging to a cluster sends their sensed data to cluster heads present with in the same cluster via a one-to-one communication. The data from head node to the control or base station will be forwarded through intermediate cluster heads. The multi-path routing scheme estimates multiple routes between a cluster head and base station. Then selects an optimal path based on multiple factors including total remaining energy available in the intermediate cluster heads, count of data packets already waiting in the forward and send buffer and the hop count between the head node and control station. The overall performance of the routing approach is found to be better when compared to the single path routing.

Named Data Networking (NDN) is termed as future internet where content is retrieved based on the name not with the IP address. Even though NDN has lot of merits, it suffers a lot during interest forwarding. In highly dynamic VANET environment, VANET cannot use Forwarding information Base (FIB) of NDN to forward the packet. Therefore it uses simple flooding mechanism to forward the interest which may result in broadcast storm problem. To mitigate the storm problem, we propose a zone based forwarding strategy where forwarders are selected only within the required zone. It controls the flooding outside the required zone. Our result shows that ZIF gives better results than other forwarding strategies RUFS and DADT.

The headlight glare becomes one of major causes for road accidents. This headlight glare causes the vision obstruction of opposite driver for a while which leads to minor or major road accidents. Out of average annual accidents due to headlight glare is about 30%. The current headlight system consists of either of the “Parabolic reflector or Narrow angled reflector (short focal distance), or Wide angled reflector (long focal distance). In these types of conventional reflectors, point source of light is converted into parallel light of beams then it is magnified i.e., light beam is diverged by using the concave lens, which leads to glare. The motto of the proposed project is to reduce the glare by using parallel beam headlight system. The system not only consists of parallel beams but also some amount of diverged beam to ensure downside visibility. This combined system leads to effective visibility of the objects and vehicles in the road area. The combined system consists of a parabolic reflector, filament, concave lens, protective torch glass. That is the single concave lens is replaced by protective torch glass and the concave lens which gives combined effect of both parallel and diverged beams.

An Automotive vehicle had changed drastically since they were made. One of the major concerns in automobile is safety and comfort. When travelling at 65 mph driver can be driving blind for 100 to 200 feet looking down at the small switches located slightly below steering wheel, so it can be achieved by fitting the control switches in the steering wheel based on the ergonomics law that makes the driver, comfort and convenient while driving and it also reduces the driver’s distractions while operation. But the desired amount of comfort is not achieved with this existing system while often usage of horn especially during long rides because of its hardness during operation and also it produces the fatigue stress to the drivers. An effective way for elimination of fatigue stress could be achieved by replacing the conventional switches to touch enabled switches and also by changing its position of mounting it. For this, we use the Arduino Uno as a control unit and it can actuate the relay whenever signal from the touch sensor (via human). Thus, this method reduces the fatigue stress and increases the comfort and reduces the distraction to the driver.

The research culture is a fundamental pillar for scientific production, because it allows us to train future professionals contemplating the techniques, methods and the process of research to prepare short documents: such as essays, monographs, and then deepen the knowledge by performing the thesis and scientific articles, in order to contribute to science with new knowledge. In the reality studied, it was evidenced that students lack investigative competences. The general and specialty training courses do not develop such capacities, but exclusively to theoretical and practical knowledge linked to professional training. Teachers do not consider research as a profitable activity. However, the educational community is acting proactively for the creation of new research teams with a disruptive presence, where researchers and teachers share their knowledge through the practical teaching of the process of scientific investigation. The university understudy, to date, has several projects financed by CONCYTEC, FINCyT, World Bank, SENCICO, the same that not only contribute to science but the improvement of the quality of life of people with innovative jobs. Although the results are encouraging, the scientific production ratio per research professor turns out to be almost two publications, while if it is related to the student population of the 9th and 10th cycle, the unit is not reached. Consequently, through these changes in the attitude of a tiny group, the student population is encouraged to be part of the new research culture through scientific input for the benefit of the population.

Use of oil spill dispersants is one of the possible oil spill response techniques that remove floating oil. Dispersants are an effective way of minimizing the overall ecological and socio-economic damage, by preventing oil from reaching coastal habitats and shorelines and meanwhile enhancing the natural biodegradation processes. Their use accelerates the rate and extent of natural dispersion and dilution of oil caused by wave action. The dispersants surface active agents transform by using the energy of the waves the most of the spilled oil into droplets. They are pushed into the upper column by wave action and kept there by turbulence. These oil droplets are much more available to naturally-occurring hydrocarbon-degrading microorganisms compared to floating or stranded oil. In comparison with other oil spill techniques it has some limitations related to oil viscosity and the time of applying after the oil spill.

Phytate [myo-inositol(1,2,3,4,5,6) hexakisphosphate] is the main storage form of phosphorus (P) in many plants which is the key food ingredient for animals but, this phytate-bound P is not available to monogastric animals as they lack the endogenous enzyme required to hydrolyze, and make the available phytate phosphorous. For this reason the availability and digestibility of phytate phosphorous is very low in these animals. Phytase (myo-inositol hexakisphosphate phosphohydrolase) catalyses sequential hydrolysis of phosphate ester bond of phytate and releases a usable form of inorganic phosphorus. Fortification of animal feed with phytase is an effective way to increase the availability of phytate bound phosphorus. It also reduces the anti-nutritional properties of phytic acid and eutrophication caused by excretion of phytic acid. The aim of the present work is to isolate thermotolerant phytase producing actinomycetes. So that feed supplementation of phytase produced by these organism can increases the body performance measured in terms of body weight. Sixty two different actinomycetal isolates were isolated from sixty nine soil and litter samples collected from various poultry, goat and cattle farms. These isolates were further screened for phytase activity in liquid Phytase Screening Medium(PSM). Isolates showing high phytase activity further studied for effect of temperature for phytase activity at 300C, 400C, 500C, 600C, 700C, 800C, 900C.

These days, more people grow dependency on IT infrastructures and relies their decision making on the data stored within a computer system. Data go through some processing to make it useful whereas in other time it is kept within the database. Data availability is a critical issue, the approach is to do backup all the crucial data, and it can be difficult especially a beginner. One of the human errors is easily forgetting things, in this situation a periodic manual backup may be forgotten to do even it’s a click away. A hacker looks for the opportunity to attack even as tiny as a day of forgotten backup. This is one of the reason backups must be an automated process. It can be coupled with cryptography as a mean to protect data from theft, alteration, and authenticate. Chaotic cryptography is an application of chaos theory into cryptography, which makes use of a simplex system to produce chaotic value needed for the encryption and decryption. The advantage of chaos cryptography is randomness alike, which creates more complex encryption and decryption key by a concept of confusion and diffusion.

This study deals with the encapsulation of copper oxide nanoparticles with a terpolymer resin by ultrasonic irradiation technique. The plant-mediated biological synthesis of copper oxide nanoparticles involves the addition of 1mmol solution of copper chloride to 30 mL of Acacia catechu (Karungali) plant extract at 600C, which acts as a biological reducing agent. The resultant brown nano powder is characterized by using various analytical techniques, such as Fourier Transform Infrared spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction, Scanning Electron Microscopy and Transmission Electron Microscopy. In this method, encapsulation involves dissolution of nano copper oxide into one of the monomers trioxane followed by conventional condensation by refluxing 4-hydroxyacetophenone and melamine in the presence of 2M HCl as a catalyst in temperature range of 123-1300C. After the completion of the reaction, terpolymer incorporated with nano copper oxide is purified by dissolution in 8% NaOH, re-precipitated by dropwise addition of 1:1 2M HCl and then characterized by different spectral methods like FT-IR, TGA - DTA, Proton NMR and Carbon -13 NMR to elucidate the structure of the CuO/HAMT nanocomposite. In addition, both terpolymer and the nano bound terpolymer are investigated for the anti-oxidant activity using 2,2-diphenyl,1-picryl hydrazyl (DPPH). From the result, it is found that the incorporated terpolymer is more effective scavenger of DPPH than the polymer.

In India for the cooking purposes the conventional fuels are likely consumed more than the non-conventional fuels, and the household conventional fuels increase air pollution. By switching to the non-conventional way of cooking it is a way of reducing the household air pollution caused by conventional fuels. Solar is the one of the efficient way of cooking and heating purposes without pollution .The way of cooking is with the parabolic dishes, the concentrated solar rays is made to be focussed on the vessel placed nearby it, which in turn heats and cooks the meal placed in it. But the problem in solar cooking system is that the cooking is cannot be performed after the sunshine hours and people hesitates to adopt it for the fulltime cooking. The problem can be overcome by employing the phase change materials additionally when the vessel subjected to the sunrays the phase change materials which were surrounded to the vessel is also subjected to sunrays which melts the phase change materials and in turn absorbs heat up to maximum temperature of 372.5℃. The absorbed heat can be used after the sunshine hours particularly for evening cooking purposes, the heat absorbed during the sunshine hours is now liberated to cook the meal. Finally solar cooking is made flexible for the cooking purposes.

The emergence of cryptocurrency as a new payment method gives rise to various security threats related to transaction malleability like privacy leakage, loss of amount, doing illicit activities, and double-spending of the same money more than once. Double-spending of money is quite easier to implement in cryptocurrency management rather than fiat currency management because data replication can be easily done here. The rise of double-spending may degrade the performance of the Bitcoin network. In Blockchain, there may be lakhs of records and thousands of blocks available, of this detecting double-spending data in multiple blocks takes more time. To address the time management, of detecting double-spent data in multiple blocks of blockchain this paper had proposed Multi-Block Double spent Transaction Detection (MBDTD) architecture using B-tree indexing and Cognizant Merkle. The combination of Cognizant Merkle and B-tree indexing supports the rapid verification of transaction data in multiple blocks.

Dividend Policy is a policy of the company's management in determining the profit available to shareholders in the form of dividends or profits needed to finance future investments. There is a lot to consider regarding how dividend policy affects the value of the company.. According to the bird in the hand theory, shareholders prefer high dividends compared to dividends that will be distributed in the future, because high dividends will increase the value of the company. the results of the study using the PLS-SEM analysis tool with the WarpPLS 5.0 application show that dividend policy has a negative effect on firm value with a coefficient value of -0.172. This is consistent with the first view that dividend policy does not affect the value of the company that is supported by the theory of dividend irrelevance.

Accidents owing to potholes has become an alarming problem in today’s life. The first step to solve this problem requires, designing a device embedded on the vehicle which can continuously scan the road surface for identifying potholes, alerting the driver in time and enable the driver to avoid the pothole. The second step is to introduce a technique to enable the device to locate the position of the pothole via GPS (Global Positioning System). The GPS data can be uploaded via a GPRS (General Packet Radio Service) module or Bluetooth module onto a data base which is stored locally. This database can then be transferred to the cloud using WiFi or 4G technology by connecting the system. The third aspect is to link the database to a network system incorporating mapping software such as Google Maps or Open-Street Map. The data in the system can be made available to the general public as well as municipalities and road maintenance agencies. Awareness of the location of potholes will help drivers to avoid those roads and being more careful while driving on the same roads. This paper focuses on the pothole detection task based on image processing algorithms and the data captured from ultrasonic sensor placed on the vehicle.

Secured retrieval of data stored on the cloud has attracted the research community in the recent years. Individuals and business enterprises utilize the cloud for storing and managing potential data due to the significance of high economic savings and comfort. İn this context, data need to be secured before it is outsourced in order to achieve confidentiality in the cloud data retrieval process. In this paper, a secure retrieval process over cloud data using Improved Privacy Multi-Keyword Retrieval Scheme (IPMKRS) is proposed. This secure retrieval process includes a recursive procedure that uses single integer operations which rapidly converge to the collection of points that aid in constructing the scrambled data propagated through the clouds. IPMKRS includes Cloud set-up, initialization and retrieval phases for securing the data shared on the cloud. It plays a vital role in encrypting the cloud data using the concept of Multi-Keyword based Ranking (MKR) derived based on the technique of co-ordinate matching. The cloud servers are responsible for ranking the files that are stored on the server. The results prove that IPMKRS reduces the cost of communication during the identification of top secure files on the file server.

Background of the problem. The efficiency of heat exchange equipment in a closed indoor water supply depends on corrosion and the deposition of mineral salts on their surface. This is due to a decrease in the values of heat transfer coefficients between the aqueous medium and the wall of the heat exchangers. In this regard, the prevention of mineral deposits in water systems and corrosion of carbon steel pipes and equipment is one of the most important tasks. The problem, so far, has been solved with the use of scale inhibitors, which were imported from abroad for the oil refineries of our Republic, therefore, the development and implementation of new compositions of corrosion and scale inhibitors based on local raw materials is a solution not only to import substitution, but also to innovative technology . The aim of this work is to develop corrosion inhibitors and scaling based on analyzes of the electrochemical properties of water, with different ratios of activator ions present in the aquatic environment. Methodology. The degree of inhibitory protection Z = [100% (ic ° - ic ') / ic °], where ic ° and ic' are the corrosion rates in the absence and presence of an inhibitor, evaluated by polarization curve (PC) methods (PI-50-1 potentiostat , potentials - on the scale of N.V.E.) and polarization resistance (PS) (P-5035 corrosion meter), measured on electrodes from Art. 20 with a purity of the air-oxidized surface Rz ≤ 10 μm, characterized by the ratio of the area (S) to the volume of the solution (V), cm2 / cm3, not more than 1:10 (for PC and PS S = 0.5 and 25 cm2). Gravimetric measurements (GI) were carried out under static and dynamic conditions (stirring, 300 rpm) for ≤30 days on samples from Art. 20 (Rz ≤ 20 μm, s = 26.9 cm2; S / V = 1:20). The inhibition of the scaling process was determined using the operating instructions on an ISO-1 device. Scientific novelty. It was established that the concentration of chemicals affecting the corrosive properties of water found in natural waters should not exceed, after their purification, standards in accordance with GOST 2877-82. The nature of the course of corrosion depends on the ions present in the corrosive medium, mainly anions. Received data. The effectiveness of the use of corrosion and scale inhibitors GPMSC and IONX-1 relative to imported HEDPA was determined. When the value of the corrosion rate for GPMSh is 0.0000064287; IONX-1 - 0.0000083722; and OEDPC - 0.0000245186. The effectiveness of the inhibition of scaling for GPMS - 91.76%; for IONX-1 - 89.41%; and for an imported scale inhibitor of HEDPK - 94.11%.

Recent advancements of the hyperspectral remote sensing data extend high spectral information along with the huge dimensional features. Feature extraction helps to project the high dimensional features to low dimensional features without missing any spectral information of the hyperspectral data. This paper highlights the two issues of the hyperspectral data pixel-wise and sub-pixel-wise classification paradigms by proposing the novel weighted feature extraction to improve the classification accuracy. The first issue is the curse of dimensionality of hyperspectral data and the second issue is the former method in estimating model requires the proper weighted method due to lack in estimation of the covariance matrix. This paper proposed gravitational mass weighted method in probability PCA (GMWProbPCA) which is inspired from the gravitational search algorithm to project the high dimensional features to the low dimensional features. In pixel-wise-classification paradigm, the proposed algorithms was compared with the state-of-art techniques supervised LDA and unsupervised PCA and Probability PCA using SVM classification accuracy. The proposed method yields high classification average accuracy of 93.75% and overall accuracy of 89.74% respectively. In sub-pixel-wise classification, the fully constrained least square method and khype are employed and justified as with and without proposed feature extraction GMWProbPCA. The less average root mean squared error is achieved for both FCLS and Khype with proposed GMWProbPCA are 0.044 % and 0.037%.

Wireless Sensor Networks are most appropriate technology for Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) to monitor the structure by easy placement of the sensors. SHM is the technique for monitoring the engineering structures by implementing the sensors on the physical structure (bridges/dams). Some of the parameters, e.g., distant communication, energy of sensor these properties related to the sensor should be taken into account. The inaccuracies in sending data, unsteady connectivity can affect the throughput of sensor while observe structure. The existing system focused only on backup sensors placement that are resilient to WSN faults. The energy level gets depleted while sending the monitored data. In proposed system, the Genetic algorithm is introduced to optimize the path for the communication and sleep-wake up scheduling is used to awaken the nodes and placement of backup sensor nodes on the optimized route is used to communicate the collected data to the base station. This will increases the network lifetime and play down the energy utilization. The performance of the methods is mentioned detail using simulation.

In mobile cellular network, coverage estimation and network optimization are important parts of the operation and maintenance procedures. These operations and maintenance procedures mainly rely on the Reference Signal Received Power (RSRP) measurements which are collected from the mobile cellular operators’ site in/for any given area or region. In this study the measurements were recorded by a professional receiver with appropriate software and license in Benin City, Edo State, Southern Nigeria. In reducing the number of errors by the mobile cellular operators so as to effectively enhance the quality of service (QoS), optimization becomes imperative. The self-organizing network (SON) is applied to these RSRP data to detect, compensate and recover for the outage or error. The analysis of some RSRP measurement records was done using the SON approach. The simulation was carried out via MATLAB R2015a software. The result indicates outage in some units and compensation carried out by accelerating the traffic from the neighbouring units. The traffic of the units was served and compensated. However, they were not entirely compensated.

Study on travel time reliability of transportation system is becoming more important in developed and developing countries due to increased economic activities and improvements in quality of life. Till to date various congestion level performance measurements are developed but most of these measures represents the average and total level of congestion of the road network. Whereas the travel time reliability-based performance measures represent the variability in travel time of the road/ network. Most of the congestion level performance measures considers the average travel time of the trip, whereas the travel time reliability-based performance measures consider the TTT distribution. This implies that the travel time reliability measures are capable of measuring the variability in congestion. Further, a detailed investigation is required to study the relation between the travel time reliability measurement and the congestion measures. Hebbal flyover is an important junction on ORR formed with intersection of two major roads namely, ORR which is an arterial road and Bellary road which is a NH-7.

Nutrients are vital in corn crops and its determination of nutrient deficiency is not an easy job for corn farmers with insufficient formal education or training in the field of agriculture. Traditional methods were adapted in the analysis of nutrient deficiency. This includes the processes like visual inspection, soil testing, and tissue analysis. These processes were tedious, subjective and also time consuming especially on very large farms. With the advent of computer vision and machine learning techniques, this offers new prospects in non-destructive field-based analysis for nutrient deficiency. This suggests that there is a need to revolutionized this outdated process and develop an automated system that will help corn farmers to determine what nutrient is lacking from their corn crops to sustain high corn production and of disaster risk reduction. This paper provided a new method to classify and identify nutrient deficiencies in corn through image processing. Two hundred (200) samples were used in the study for testing, and Five thousand (5000) images of corn leaves were used as a training set. The results in the study show an overall accuracy rate of 91.5%, thus provides a better and innovative way of determining nutrient deficiencies in corn.

All ports need to be ready to handle more cargoes from mega ships that arise with deeper draft. The nature of port expansion and development requires enormous amount of land area as well as waterfront. Lack of suitable land area adjacent to the waterfront makes it difficult for the expansion of the existing port. One of the recommended solutions to this problem is the construction of an artificial island in the sea nearby. In this paper, we review the impacts of construction of artificial island to the coastal zone and examine the consequences of changing the shoreline. Furthermore, we will investigate the possible layout plans such as T-shaped artificial island for the construction of future port/wharf development and maritime related industries. The paper will include the impact of land-based pollution to the coastal environment as a result of allocating the industries on the artificial island.

The aims of this study is to analyze the effect of carbon emissions disclosure on firm value and industry type as moderating variables. Carbon emissions disclosure is measured using the content analysis method adopted from a questionnaire issued by the CDP (Carbon Disclosure Project). Firm value is measured by Tobin's Q, while industry types are assessed based on company classifications namely high profile industry and low profile industry. This study uses multiple linear regression analysis, and uses 43 companies listed on the Indonesia Stock Exchange and follows the 2014-2018 company's performance rating assessment program in environmental management (PROPER). The first analysis shows that carbon emissions disclosure has a positive and significant effect on firm value. This is because carbon emissions disclosure is a form of corporate responsibility in reducing the impact of environmental damage from company activities, so this can be an attraction for investors. The second research result shows that the type of industry can increase the effect of carbon emissions disclosure on firm value. This is because companies in the high profile industry category that have a high level of sensitivity to the environment are under pressure from the public, so the company responds by conducting carbon emissions disclosure so that it can be a guarantee of the company's sustainability.

This study aimed to describe the performance in the Phil-IRI test of 1,697 Grade II pupils from 19 schools in San Miguel North District, Bulacan during the School Year 2014-2015 after implementing a set of intervention activities. To determine the effectiveness of the strategies employed in preparing pupils for the Phil-IRI post test, t-test for correlated samples was used to compare the pre-test with the post-test results. The school heads and teachers rated their preparation of Grade II pupils for the Phil-IRI post test. The reading levels of pupils were categorized as frustration, instructional, and independent in silent reading speed, word recognition, and comprehension. In silent reading, there was a huge improvement for the slow readers; it increased from 23.60% to 45.98% and for the fast readers from 19.46% to 37.35%. For the average group, however, from 34.56% it only increased to 41.2%. The mean difference was statistically significant for the slow and the fast group but not for the average group. Similar trend was observed in word recognition and comprehension levels. The mean difference for the three levels in the pre- and post-test results were statistically significant, however, the increase for the instructional group was smaller. The different learning activities given resulted to a significant improvement in pupils’ reading and comprehension level but it is unclear as to which intervention strategy was most effective. It was recommended to systematically assess the strategies employed and to have a uniform set of criteria for gauging pupils reading improvement. Furthermore, performance target must be set and teachers who have attained such target must be rewarded.

Internet of Things (IoT) is a communication technology that enables the devices as vehicles being connected called as Internet of Vehicles (IoV) for allowing the data communication in the intelligent transportation system. IoV communicates with each other to identify the current status of the road and vehicle for real-time traffic comfort and safety. Due to the increasing number of vehicles in city road networks, efficient neighbor identification and finding of the best available path in the highly unstable vehicular environment are the major problems. An efficient technique called Probit Regressive Chaotic Bio-inspired Grey Wolf Optimization (PRCBGWO) technique is introduced to improve the reliable data transmission and minimize the end to end delay in IoV. The PRCBGWO technique performs neighboring location identification and optimal route path discovery. At first, vehicle nodes characteristics such as distance, signal strength and angle of direction are calculated. Then the Probit Regression is applied by analyzing the node characteristics and identifies the neighboring nodes from source to destination. Next the multiple route paths are constructed through the route request and reply message distribution between source and destination. Finally, Multi-Objective Chaotic Grey Wolf Optimization technique is applied to discover the optimal route path among the available paths with multiple objective functions such as path length and bandwidth availability. A reliable route path from source to destination is identified through the neighboring vehicles. After that, the data packets are transmitted along the selected route path to the destination node. This helps to improve packet delivery and minimize loss and end to end delay. The simulation is carried out with different metrics such as packet delivery ratio, packet loss rate, average end to end delay and throughput based on a number of data packets. The observed results confirm that the PRCBGWO technique increases the packet delivery ratio, throughput and minimizes the end to end delay, as well as packet loss than the state-of-the-art methods.

In the history of Assam and Assamese literature, the period of 19th century was specifically significant one. From the beginning of that century Assam experienced political, sociological and economical diminution and all of these situations contributed towards creation of another diminution called intellectual diminution. The contribution of Christian Missionaries towards the development of Assamese language and literature is noteworthy. The arrival of American Baptist Missionaries in Assam was not accidental or sudden happening; rather it was well planned by the colonial government as per their policies. Whatever the background, but their contributions towards the Assamese literature and language and as well as Assamese society was not forgettable not only then but today also. This paper will make significant contributions to the existing literature by analyzing contributions of Missionaries in the field of Assamese literature which is very significant.

This paper examines the issue of the pronunciation of English by Uzbek learners and why it appears to be such an intractable problem despite excellent effort. The research is influenced by Saracen’s argument that takes a critical approach to World English and the key issue of reconciling language as a scheme with language as a social exercise. Because the examination system in Uzbekistan's public education industry favors written over spoken job, English-speaking abilities have become marginalized in the college curriculum, including English pronunciation. Paradoxically, motivated by globalization, the need for Uzbek to be able to interact with a multitude of English speakers from around the globe has increased. This paper is a case study investigating English pronunciation teaching and learning in one Uzbek school. Instead of adding to the current significant literature on comparative phonology between English and Uzbek, the research focuses on social, psychological and cultural elements that affect Uzbek English learners.

The article deals with multi-storey residential buildings in the climatic conditions of Uzbekistan. The principles of the formation of courtyard spaces of various planning structures is given, as well as their landscape design solutions depending on the region of construction (deserts and oases) and wind conditions. In a multi-storey residential building mainly consists of 4-9 storey-houses, so 7-9 storey-houses are recommended to be used partially along the border of the microdistrict from the direction of the prevailing wind direction, where the average wind speed during the year is 5-7 meters / sec. and the number of days with dusty winds is more than 20. In the regions of oases and foothills, where there is enough water and landscaping (climate zone II in Construction Norms 2.01.01–94), it is advisable to use semi-open planning structures of the courtyards. In a quadrangular courtyard one side is not built up, it is left open. This open side of the courtyard is heading towards the prevailing wind of the warm period of the year. In the region of foothills and valleys of Uzbekistan, where the average wind speed of the warm period is 2-3 meter / sec, open planning structures of courtyard spaces are recommended. In such courtyards are built only two of its opposite sides. The open side (or sides) is directed towards the prevailing summertime winds.

Assam’s indigenous tribal community Mising has a rich tradition of weaving. A Mising woman, despite being engaged in myriad household activities through the day, is likely to spend some time on her loom every day. The women make garments, mainly for everyday use, on handlooms. They also weave classy products for special occasions. But now a day’s Mising women weave for business purpose too. The traditional throw shuttle loom is built under the traditional stilt house. Through a tedious process, the weavers produce wraps like mekhela chador and gero, stoles like gamosa, besides some utilitarian items. However the handloom sector has still unable to provide fulltime employment opportunities to the Mising artisian hence the Weaving is not a viable livelihood for them due to certain problems.

Every person in this world throws waste in the form of plastics, wet waste, dry waste and etc. Also, every person looks for a place or a plastic container to dispose that waste, that plastic container is the Dustbin which they look for. Dustbin is a plastic container where everyone can dispose their waste. Dustbin is used as a storage place to dispose waste, but we cannot estimate the exact amount of waste disposed by a society, and the dustbin cannot take more waste as the space should be available in it to take more. We need to know the level of waste in the dustbin and based on that we can intimate people to use the dustbin or not. In this Smart Dustbin project, we have designed a prototype where the lid of the dustbin is opened, on detection of human hand and waste, and the level of waste available inside the dustbin is sent as notification in the form of LED. The main components we used in making this prototype are Arduino, NODEMCU, Servo Motor and Ultrasonic Sensors. The software component is the application named as Blynk which is used to get notification. This dustbin can be a start to Smart Waste Management System where the officials can clean or empty the dustbin which depends on the notification received by them and not waiting for a call from a person of a society who informs the garbage trucks to come and take the waste from them.

The current study is based on the use of carbon fiber reinforced polymers (CFRP) to strengthen the structural I- Beam to its shear zone. CFRP has light-weight and high-strength, it is very flexible and thus forms all shapes, and is easy to handle during construction, so instead of using conventional methods for repair it can be used for strengthening purpose. Two sections with different cross-sectional dimensions of beams were used for this purpose. The web of the I-Beam was sand-blasted and made rust-free to attach CFRP sheets. Then carbon fiber sheets were attached in different layers using the proper adhesive. The beam with CFRP is cured and experimentation is done on UTM of 100 Ton capacity. A four-point bending test was performed on eight beams and results show that the shear capacity of a strengthened beam is increased by 17% to 40% compared with the non-strengthened beam. The deflection at mid-point of the beam is checked and it is observed that the deflection of the strengthened beam and the non-strengthened beam is the same, thus CFRP strengthening technique is the best way to improve the performance of steel sections within permissible deflection limits. So, such a technique of strengthening steel sections can be used to enhance the properties of various old structures that undergo loss of strength due to corrosion and aging.

Curriculum evaluation in the perspectives of student-clienteles is a significant and healthy approach to curriculum improvement. This paper aimed to post-evaluate insights of Filipino college students on the implementation of K to 12 in the Philippines, especially on the following study variables: Whether K to 12 has prepared students for college or not, whether K to 12 subjects are aligned with college course or not, whether Spiral Progression helped for college science and math mastery or not, and their belief of becoming an engineer despite all K to 12 issues they experienced. Involving 361 student-respondents in one highly performing university in the Philippines, and using a validated survey-questionnaire as data-gathering instrument, the researcher found that the proportion of K-to-12-Prepared college students equal with the K-to-12-Not-Prepared college students, and that majority of the respondents believe that the K to 12 subjects they took in senior high school are aligned with their college courses. However, majority believed that Spiral Progression did not help them to master the content of Science and Math in senior high school which they could have used in learning Science and Math in college better. Despite all issues of K to 12, majority of the respondents are found to be ‘Very Highly Confident’ of becoming an engineer someday. Further, findings revealed that STEM-graduate students favor K to 12 preparation, alignment, and spiral progression while other strands do not; that 1st year students favor the idea that K to 12 has prepared them for college and that K to 12 subjects are aligned, compared to 2nd year and irregular students; and, that students receiving no awards in senior high school negatively answer from those with awards in their belief to become an engineer someday. Findings show strong concern to Spiral Progression that should be dealt with through future educational policy.

The opportunistic mobile networks (OMNs) evolved from mobile adhoc networks (MANETs) with add on delay-tolerant network (DTN) features. In these networks, sender to receiver connectivity never arises mostly, due to dynamic nature of the hosts and the network partition due to mobility. The main use of OMNs is to provide connectivity in challenged environments. The paper details the analysis of epidemic routing protocol, against variable size of buffer at each host while considering the random way point and Random walk mobility models with fixed value of Time-to-live (TTL) in the network. The key contribution of the paper is to explore epidemic routing protocol with mobility models for the dissemination of message to the destination. Routing in opportunistic network uses the store-carry-forward technique for message transfer and network has to keep tradeoff between message delivery ratio and delivery delay. Opportunistic Network Environment (ONE) simulator is being used for experiments and results. The impact of buffer size at each host has great impact on the performance of routing protocol. The evaluated three metrics, the delivery ratio, overhead ratio and the average latency are measured against buffer size. The results show that for buffer size ranging from 2MB to 10MB, the epidemic protocol offers the best delivery performance in the network with random way point mobility model, there is a 13.8% improvement for a smaller message than a larger message. There is 82% reduction in the overhead ratio for the epidemic protocol and the average latency is almost comparable in epidemic protocol in the considered scenario.

The temperature and humidity of a plant are the main parameters that affect the amount of water it needs. The design of a control system that has non-linear inputs and with difficult transfer function equations requires a control system capable of making control decisions. This is because the control decisions issued by human logic have perfect control output in everything, both conventional and unconventional. Fuzzy Logic is a method of control system that can provide decisions that resemble human decisions. In this plant design process, the fuzzy logic control system development system is used by using the MCS51 microcontroller system in the DT51 Development Tools. This is intended for a design of water control plants in plants. This fuzzy control process is carried out by a microcontroller system with an additional interface which is an Analog Input Output add-on board for DT51, an LCD interface as a time display output, a temperature sensor and a soil moisture sensor as a fuzzy logic control input. From the results of experiments conducted, it shows that the fuzzy logic control system is easier to make the control system and more flexible in making its design by not requiring mathematical equations for the function of transfer over the plant, because the fuzzy system makes decisions from human logic placed on the knowledge base system fuzzy.

Family environment represents a significant, but largely ignored area of research in the context of Ethiopia. The purpose of this study was to investigate the impacts of family environment on substance use among Kotebe Metropolitan University Students. Institutional based Cross-sectional explanatory research design, which enables to collect large data in narrowed time, was employed in this study. Data were collected from questionnaires filled by 351 students recruited from five colleges using stratified random sampling technique. Subscales of Family Environment Scale with specific to family cohesion, family communication and family conflict were used to measure participant’s perceived opinions regarding to the climate of their family. Substance use Questionnaire was also used to assess students’ level of substance use. Multiple Linear Regression Analysis was carried out as a method of data analysis. The findings of the study revealed that there was high prevalence of substance use among Kotebe Metropolitan University students: 67.80% (n=238) of the participants reported that they have been engaged in substance use, or tried at least once during the past twelve months. Khat (39.91%), Weed (5.46%), Shisha (6.30 %), Cigarette (13.86 %) and Poly substances (45%) were the type of substances that were consumed by the students. The regression result depicted that, while family cohesion and family communication were inversely and significantly associated with level of substance use, family conflict was not significantly associated with level of substance use. The implication of this finding is that family environment particularly family conflict and communication should be considered while designing intervention programs of substance use.

A bio cementitious concrete is basically a construction material (concrete) which has been incorporated with bacteria and precursor compound as healing agent that awaken and seal cracks when they emerge. The bacteria act as a catalyst, and transform the precursor compound to limestone and this technique is based on bio mineralization of bacteria. In this research, an extensive work was undertaken to investigate self-healing development and performance assessment of bio cementitious concrete, and this was carried off by integrating Bacillus Subtilis into engineered cementitious composites (ECC), normal mortar, and concrete alongside with calcium lactate, urea and yeast extract as nutrient source for the bacteria. After carrying out all the tests of culturing, growing and checking pH and temperature resistivity of the bacteria. The bacterial cell solution was integrated into the concrete matrix by adopting, immobilization of bacterial cell in pumice solution, encapsulation of stiffen bacteria sand and immobilization of bacterial cell into porous expansive clay particles as techniques for adding and protecting the bacterial cell inside the concrete. During the mixing and specimen preparation stage, three bacterial cell solutions of concentrations (104,106,108)cells/ml were prepared and mixed with M25 mortar and normal concrete by using mix ratios 1:1:2 , 1:1.32:2.5 with water/cement ratio of 0.5. Again the bacterial cell solution was mixed with M40 ECC of water/binder ratio of 0.33 and sand/ binder ratio of 1: 0.84.The bacteria reacted with the concrete elements to form calcium carbonate precipitate (CaCO3) or limestone which successfully sealed the created cracks. Performance assessment was done on the specimens and the following results were obtained; at a concentration of 104cell/ml of bacterial cells, the compressive strength of concrete begins to increase to an optimum value at 106cell/ml and declines at 108cell/ml. The specimens of stiffen sand capsules, pumice immobilized bacterial cell and loaded clay particle at 2% replacement by coarse aggregates weight increased the compressive strength of concrete by 35.20%, 31.59% and 0.20% respectively at the end of 28 curing days. Cracked Stiffen sand capsules and pumice immobilized bacterial cell ECC specimen regained flexural strength of 23.6% and 32.22% at the end of 56 self-healing days. Sorptivity at end of 56 days for self-healed stiffen sand capsules, pumice immobilized bacterial cell and loaded clay particle concrete specimens were reduced by 70.1%, 70% and 81.9% respectively. The bacterial incorporated concrete specimens with crack width of 0.015 mm, 0.018 mm and 0.02 mm respectively were completely sealed by CaCO3 precipitate at the end of 56 self-healing days. The new material formed at crack areas was CaCO3 according to the X-Ray Diffraction spectra obtained. Based on these factors, it is concluded that the bio cementitious concrete showed excellent performance assessments in terms of compressive strength, sorptivity reduction, flexural strength, crack repair and crack recovery strength at the end of 56 self-healing day.

In this paper we present an idea of using character recognition for sorting the handwritten postcards in postal service. The Indian postal letter sorting system has been made to recognize the postcards based on PIN codes by using Barcode approaches. The objective of the project is to provide an alternative mean to the traditional sorting system which consumes more time for processing and sorting the postcards based on their respective areas. It also aims at eliminating the human errors which may occurs during manual sorting. This can be achieved by character recognition for segregating the postcards based on their respective district. The character recognition process is carried out by taking the postcard images as input and the addresses are converted into string of pixel values. The string of pixel values is processed with the datasets. As a result, the characters are recognized for each input image. When the entire recognition process is completed, the addresses are sorted based on their district and the addresses are uploaded to the corresponding excel sheet based on their district. This provides a solution to the existing problem in spending more time for processing and sorting the postcards and also helps to avoid human errors during manual sorting of postcards.

Thermo-forming normally consists of heating a thermoplastic semi-finished product until the forming temperature is reached, and subsequently the desired form is obtained by means of pressure difference and mechanic stretching. Thermo-forming is a forming method that, by means of several process steps, facilitates the production of an inherently stable plastic part. Basically, the raw material is transformed by heating into a viscous - flexible phase and a relatively low load. The formed part cools in the tooling and is subsequently demoulded. Thermal vacuum forming is a version of thermoforming, where a sheet of plastic is heated to a forming temperature, stretched onto a single-surface mold, and forced against the mold by a vacuum. This process can be used to form plastic into permanent objects such as turnpike signs and protective covers. Normally draft angles are present in the design of the mold (a recommended minimum of 3°C to ease removal of the formed plastic part from the mold. Relatively deep parts can be formed if the formable sheet is mechanically or pneumatically stretched prior to bringing it into contact with the mold surface and applying vacuum. Suitable materials for use in vacuum forming are conventionally thermoplastics. The most common and easiest to use thermoplastic is high impact polystyrene sheeting (HIPS) or Polypropylene Copolymer Grade (PP COPG). Vacuum forming is also appropriate for transparent materials such as acrylic. The machine mainly consists of a Heater, Vacuum pump, and Thermoplastics. The heater is used to heat the plastic material to the required temperature, then the plastic is forced on to the pattern whose replica is required. Vacuum pump is used to create the vacuum at the forming region to remove the air gaps within the pattern and the required shape is formed.

Cognitive radio is an advancement of the wireless technologies in which different licensed and unlicensed users can be accommodated into the same network spectrum. Cognitive radio allows the effective utilization of the network resources and the bandwidth which is idle most of the time if only primary users are allowed. Accommodating secondary unlicensed bands into the network spectrum is a complex process. The first step involved in this process is to sense the channel to check if all the network parameters allow a new user in the unlicensed band. There are several channel sensing mechanisms and approaches that can be used for specific requirements. This paper lists and analyzes several channels sensing approaches and compares the efficiency. Among the channel sensing mechanisms are analyzed for their efficiency in various conditions and requirements. The implementation complexity and accuracy of each approach are analyzed qualitatively. A generic algorithm on how the secondary users can sense the network and transmit the data is also provided. The implementation guidelines can be followed to simulate the channel sensing mechanism in any network tool.

Retrofitting of structures became popular in the field of civil engineering for repairing and rehabilitation of existing damaged and new buildings which are inadequate to bear the loads acting on them. The concrete structures can also be damaged due to aging, excessive loads, accidental loads, temperature, corrosion, chemicals, and other conditions. Demolishing and reconstructing those structures needs more time and uneconomical hence strengthening was done. Using FRP for strengthening concrete structures is one of the effective methods of strengthening due to its advantages like lightweight, highly resistant to corrosion and chemicals, high tensile strength, high stiffness and also it is easily applied to structures. The most commonly used fibers were steel, carbon, glass, aramid, basalt, polypropylene, nylon, etc. Nowadays natural fibers like jute, kenaf, flax, hemp, etc. were also used. Numerous studies were conducted to find its effectiveness in various conditions like marine, fire, corrosive and other aggressive conditions.

This paper comes as a response to the fact that, more and more accidents are caused by people who fall asleep at the wheels. Eye tracking is one of the most important aspects in driver assistance systems, tracking an eye plays a major role as eyes hold more information about gaze, attention and fatigue level of drivers. This plays a vital role in the ADAS systems. The number of times the driver blinks will be taken into account for identification of the driver’s drowsiness. The direction of where the driver is looking will be estimated according to the location of the driver’s eye gaze. The developed algorithm was implemented using Open-CV in order to create a portable system. This system is designed with alarm indication to wake up the driver on the wheels using the buzzer and the vibrator attached to the steering wheel.

Bitcoin has risen as the best cryptocurrency ever. Inside two years of its tranquil dispatch in 2009, Bitcoin developed to involve billions of US dollars of financial incentive regardless of just careless examination of the framework's plan. In the meantime an enormous and lively open-source network has proposed and sent various adjustments and augmentations. However, the GCC region remains unexplored in terms of cryptocurrency research. Hence, we provide the first survey on cryptocurrency in the GCC economy. In this exploratory study, we used an online questionnaire survey that was collected from 610 individuals and investors from all Gulf countries namely: Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Saudi Arabia and UAE. The research instrument consists of 24 different questions that measure respondents’ opinions and attitudes toward cryptocurrency in the GCC. The findings reveal that most respondents in the GCC have heard or read about cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin or Ethereum. However, a vast majority of them (85%) do not own cryptocurrency. In addition, investing in cryptocurrency is more risky and less profitable than investing in the stock market. Also, if cryptocurrency is government regulated but remained intangible, it would increase their interest in cryptocurrency, and in near future i.e. within 5 years, cryptocurrency will be worth more than today.

The objective of this paper is Implementation of a microstrip U-slot antenna based on the resonant frequency with High-Frequency Structure Stimulator. In our method, we design an antenna with a range of 1.157GHz, and we improve the gain by placing an array of the antenna. Here rectangular patch antenna is designed FR4 Glass Epoxy Substrate with a dielectric constant of r as 4.4 and a loss tangent, which is equal to 0.02, and copper is used as conducting material. This U-slot microstrip patch antenna is excited with transmission cables of respective length and width. The measurements of the gain, directivity, and efficiency of the developed microstrip patch antenna are derived from High-Frequency Structure Stimulator. There is a relation between the resonant frequency and obtained gain. If the frequency is increased, the gain is maximum. But in the proposed method, the maximum gain is derived from low frequency. The size of the antenna is proportional to frequency, gain, and bandwidth. The U-slot microstrip antenna is built with many constraints to get productive output. It is established that that two slots in U should be kept closed in a distinct patch to produce a wideband process. The u-slot microstrip antenna is made to increase the bandwidth and frequency, and it is proved. The software used here is High-Frequency Structure Stimulator and applied in a wireless local area network. It operates with high bandwidth since the structure of the antenna is too small because of its dielectric constant. It gives a maximum gain with a frequency range of above five GHz.

Currently, obesity which is a non-communicable disease (NCD) is a serious health issue that leads to many life-threatening diseases like diabetes (Type 2), cancer and heart ailments. Obesity can be determined using various factors, namely age, weight, height and Body Mass Index (BMI). The techniques that are used for obesity prediction are extremely reliant on the BMI; however, the BMI cannot be applied universally. The proposed R ensemble based prediction model incorporating 13 variables has provided an average accuracy of 97.29%. The ensemble model leverages the Enhanced Decision Tree, Naïve Bayes and the Support Vector Machine (Radial SVM). The work has considered unique health parameters such as calories consumed, pregnancy status and bodybuilder which have proved to drastically improve the accuracy of the prediction model.

Agriculture is playing very crucial part in our everyday life and is a job of Farmers. Farmers follow some steps ladders to firm a field and one among is irrigation (is an essential step in the farming). Irrigation systems must inspire plant development while diminishing salt disproportions, leaf injuries, environmental conditions, and water loss. Loss of water will arise because of, wind drift, vaporation, run-off and water sinking deep below the root. To acquire noble results in irrigation we must use noble irrigation system. Now a days, farmers are using so many irrigation systems like traditional methods, modern methods and automated methods. Even though farmers facing problems to irrigate farm filed in sloppy areas. In this paper an automatic sensor based water pumping system is proposed to made irrigation easy to the farmers by dividing firm field into blocks and each block is monitored with soil moisture, temperate and humidity sensors to pump the water and the proposed method is more useful for irrigation in sloppy areas.

Machine translation is now rather popular and is gradually breaking the world language barrier. Translation accuracy and efficiency are getting closer to human ability. In addition to translating letters and sentences, machines for translating speech have also been developed and exist in various forms. This technology has both advantages of speed, multilingual compatibility, and mobility, but it also has some disadvantages and has influences on the users. Machine translation, which still has many problems with accuracy, cannot completely replace humans now. Once we understand the advantages and disadvantages of machine translation, its application is not difficult. And after all, if users improve their language skills and knowledge, they can understand and use the words themselves correctly without relying on machine translation. This paper was based on latest journals as well as supports of the respondents who are working and studying in Ho Chi Minh City during August of 2019. From then on, some recommendations were mentioned to confirm the roles of new technology in our modern world.

Technology has become a necessity in everyone’s lives and in the education field, technology plays an assisting role, whereby the teaching and learning sessions are usually accompanied by technology. Despite using technology in education, the English as a Second Language (ESL) learners still portray a decline in their English language competency due to lack of vocabularies, which inhibit their proficiency in speaking and writing. Hence, it is important to identify the most suitable tool in teaching ESL vocabularies to learners, starting at a young age. In this 21st-century era, games are becoming popular, especially among teenagers, which resulted in the term gamified-learning. Therefore, the aim of this paper is to design, develop and evaluate the effectiveness of using PowerPoint games in improving ESL learners’ vocabularies. An empirical study involving 37 Malaysian lower secondary school students was carried out, whereby a pre-test and post-test were given prior and after three interventions respectively. Then, a survey and document analysis were carried out to triangulate the data. The findings from the post-test showed a massive improvement in learners’ vocabularies. The results from the survey portrayed that learners have positive perceptions of gamified-learning. This shows that gamified-learning is effective and positively accepted among ESL learners. This paper implied that teachers should modify their teaching methods, to suit the current generation, which can be done by incorporating games into the lesson. Future research can focus more on the different genres of games suited to the different level of students.

India being the land of snake charmers has always been influenced by the culture & tradition penetrated deep into its roots. Advertising today has enveloped every nook and corner of India effecting its masses to a high extent. Advertising & Culture go hand in hand. In advertising industry it is often a debate whether culture is reflected in Advertisements. Identifying cultural dimensions correlating with the content seems to be helpful in understanding consumer psychology. Slowly and gradually the mythological tales are being far removed from the understanding of cultural roots. But the fact is that stories, symbols and rituals construct the subjective truth (myths) of ancient and modern cultures around the world. Getting acquainted with mythology can give an innate understanding of human nature and the philosophical questions related to it. Advertising enables an audience to become a prospective customer wherein their purchase behaviour complements and enhances their lifestyles which are based upon combination of factors, including visual presence of products and services in the advertising, prices and their past experiences. In present market scenario, there has been a paradigm shift in consumer acceptance of what is reflected in advertising. As a result situation of certain products and services has somewhat become complex. Products and services that society believe should be available for purchase in market or to be seen by mass audience are prone to diverge in front of those who disagree with this conception For e.g. some believe that birth control products and advertisements related to it should not be available for audience below age of 18. On the contrary special educational sessions are being organised regarding this issue in schools and colleges irrespective of what age audience is. Advertising has thus accelerated the rate of acceptance by creating a culture fully imbibed with ideas, products and deliberate settings just to overcome the causes that may lead to a change. This paper will justify the notion that Advertising efforts leave their imprint on culture, be it negative or positive. There is no one mythology for the world today, in fact people have their own mythologies either reframing old ones or creating new ones.

Foxtail millet is an excellent functional food lacking commercial success due to difficulty in processing and consumption. The primary focus of this study is to formulate antioxidant rich meal replacement bar and analyze its nutrient composition. Foxtail millet is the principal ingredient in the meal replacement bars formulated. The consumer acceptability of these bars was assessed through organoleptic evaluation. In-vitro antioxidant assays such as DPPH, FRAP, Phosphomolybdenum, and Superoxide Anion Radical Scavenging Activity of the nutritionally finest variation was evaluated and compared against standard ascorbic acid. The foxtail millet meal replacement bars (FMRB) contains 249 to 283 Kcal energy, 49.23 to 55.90g carbohydrate, 7.14 to 9.05 g protein, and 2.34 to 2.63g fat. The FMRB were well accepted by the consumers. The in-vitro antioxidant activity of the ethanolic extract of FMRB and ascorbic acid was determined in a concentration-dependent manner (20µg-120µg). The sample extract concentration required for the half-maximal inhibition (IC50) of DPPH and superoxide anion radical was calculated. The FMRB extract has good reducing power of ferric ion (0.8857 FRAP absorbance value) and phosphate-molybdenum IV (0.9180 absorbance value). Whereas, it exhibited a lower scavenging effect against superoxide radical (17.90%) but stronger scavenging activity of DPPH (86.69%). The present study indicates that the nutritional composition of the meal replacement bars was adequate to be a healthy snack and ethanolic extract of the FMRB possesses potent antioxidant activity which supports that bar is a potential ready-to-eat functional food.

The modern power system requires real-time monitoring and fast control to be protected from faults on transmission lines. The detection and classification of faulty conditions in power systems is a task of crucial importance for reliable operation. The traditional fault diagnosis methods rely on the manual feature extraction of engineers with prior knowledge that has been proposed by several researchers for fault detection and classification. It is highly necessary to identify faults in any analog circuit to ensure the circuit's reliability. Early diagnosis of faults in a circuit can help to maintain the system significantly by avoiding potentially harmful damage from the fault. Automatically and accurately identifying the incipient micro-fault in the power system, especially for fault orientations and severity degree, is still a significant challenge in the field of intelligent fault diagnosis. Intelligent fault diagnosis methods based on machine learning become a research hotspot in the fault diagnosis field. In this paper, various machine learning algorithms are discussed.

The need for disaster risk financing is critical for Indonesian government to be proposed as one of the responses to manage the fact that Indonesia sits on the most active pacific ring of fire where most earthquakes and volcanic eruptions occur. Thus, this study attempted to investigate the isomorphic pressures on Indonesian public organizations from a disaster risk finance perspective. The discussion then becomes important since the government is seen as one of the central institutions responsible to deliver public goods and services, particularly in efforts to mitigate the natural disasters. Issues such as lack of government response, unclear disaster policies, and disaster management miss coordination, the absence of post-disaster management planning to the incompetence human capacity in public sector to handle the disaster became a source of questions on how both central and local governments deal with disaster risk policy. Therefore, it is important to conduct an assessment related to how the government institutionalizes disaster management policies, especially on disaster financing policies that should be reflected through the government's budget alignments to attain public legitimacy, including in disaster risk financing efforts. This study found that the dominating pressure in the disaster management implementation was normative pressure which was specified by the issuance of Law no. 24 of 2007, establishment of InaSAFE, and experience of losses. By knowing the institutional pressure, we gain basic knowledge required to design appropriate responses and strategies to isomorphic pressures to support institutional sustainability, particularly disaster risk finance policy.

Big data reflects the exponential increase of everyday data generated by devices connected to a network. Big data is not only enormous amount of data, but also the ways with which it could be stored, processed and analyzed. It is called the 3 Vs of big data, Volume, Variety and Velocity of data that is beyond the compute capacity of conventional data processing facilities. It requires schema-less data processing facilities, which is one way of providing solution to manage such data. This solution also is not complete without imbibing the semantic information inherent in natural language data. Hence, there is a need for extracting information, which is concerned with semantic information instead of considering only the structural information. This brings an interesting concept called semantic relevancy. The semantic information retrieval systems have to adopt according the domain knowledge involved. When dealing with semantic information, it is highly important to construct queries that could fetch semantically relevant documents than a syntactic retrieval. This would help to build systems that are not affected by polysemy and granularity mismatch. Semantic matching achieves exact interlinking of concepts among documents thereby providing a holistic view of the domain. The linking problem can be solved with the help of knowledge graph obtained from semantic interlinking. Therefore, this work reviews the various semantic information retrieval techniques with respect to big data. The pros and cons of various techniques are analysed the suggestions are made to future researchers.

Millennial homebuyers are influenced by a number of internal and external factors in their decision to buy a green residential building. Empirical findings from previous studies indicate that environmental knowledge and attitudes affect consumer behavioral intention in purchasing environmentally-friendly products. Thus, this study aimed at finding out whether the millennial generation’s environmental knowledge influences their purchase intentions mediated by attitudes toward green residential buildings. A quantitative approach was employed using survey design by distributing questionnaires to 250 prospective millennial generation buyers residing in Surabaya and Malang. It was found that environmental knowledge positively shared with attitude influences the purchase intention of a green building. Furthermore, the results of the analysis show that attitude is a partial mediating factor of environmental knowledge. Overall, this study provides empirical evidence that attitude toward green residential buildings had less effect on millennial generation compared to environmental knowledge on purchase intention. This demonstrates that the millennial generation has not gained positive benefits from a green residential building.

Biodiesel has become one of the promising alternative fuels. Various strategies are applied to improve the engine performance and emission characteristics. Most research works suggested that B20 (blend of 20% of biodiesel and 80% of diesel) could serve effectively, which can replace only 20% of the diesel requirement without any engine modifications. Very few researchers have worked in engine modification for improving the engine performance and emissions. The objective of this work is to propose a design modification of the intake manifold to improve engine performance and emissions. In this work, the influence of modified intake manifold with a Converging tube of varying ratio of outer to inner diameter (1, 1.25, 1.5 and 1.75) was investigated on the engine performance and emission characteristics. The experiments were carried out in a single cylinder diesel engine and the measurements were taken to determine engine performance and emissions. The results suggest that the addition of Converging of ratios of outer to inner diameter increased the engine performance while reducing the emissions of CO and HC.

This paper is about the study on energy conservation for window type air conditioner. Due to the sky rocketing price of electric energy available in the Philippines, energy conservation is an ideal alternative scheme in order to reduce the operating cost of energy consuming devices. Air conditioning energy sector consumes around 37% of the Philippine energy mix in residential and commercial buildings in the Philippines. With this situation, much of the energy can be saved if air conditioning system uses solar energy coupled with the inverter technology. The Inverter technology (DC) is the latest evolution of technology concerning the electro motors of the compressors. An inverter is used to control the speed of the compressor motor, so as to continuously regulate the flow of refrigerant to the evaporator when there is a lower demand for the room cooling system. With a lower mass flow rate of refrigerant of the system, energy consumption of the air conditioning system will significantly reduce without sacrificing the indoor temperature of the room. The DC Inverter units have a variable-frequency drive that comprises an adjustable electrical inverter used to control the speed of the electromotor. The drive converts the incoming AC current to DC and then through a modulation in an electrical inverter produces current of desired frequency. This study deals with the performance evaluation of a 0.75 horsepower inverter window type air-conditioning unit in Xavier University Campus. By supplying the correct amount of DC/AC voltage, the performance of the system remains the same. The data of the experimental rig, through a data logger, were gathered from 1 o’clock in the afternoon to 5 o’clock in the evening. The COP and EER of the solar-powered air conditioning system were calculated based on the result of the data recorded from the experimental rig. The COP of the system is 4.77 & the EER is 16.25 for the whole system during the test period. The average temperature recorded by the data logger in the controlled room is 19.5 oC dry bulb and 14.5 oC wet bulb temperatures, which are more than enough for the minimum requirement in the comfort air conditioning system.

Certain particular combinations of traits make routing in ad hoc networks exciting. The confined energy capacity of mobile computing devices has introduced energy conservation to the leading edge of concerns for enabling mobile communications. This is a particular difficulty for mobile ad hoc networks where devices are expected to be deployed for lengthy durations of time with restricted ability for recharging batteries. Such expectancies call for the conservation of energy in all components of the cellular device to help enhancements in device lifetime. Mobile Ad hoc Networks encompass mobile nodes with constrained battery energy. The vital trouble for routing in mobile ad hoc network is the way to choose a strong path with longer lifetime on account that mobility and strength drain of a node reasons common course failure. This route failure causes common direction discovery which influences the overall performance of the routing protocol. The direction failure additionally will increase computational overhead of the nodes. Hence, in this paper, we introduce Energy Efficient – Optimized Hierarchical Routing Algorithm (EE-OHRA), to offer higher and extra stable strength based routing route for comparable node’s characteristics in a network environment. The related node discovery set of rules is planned in that network, which is carried out to select the routing node for the precise direction with similar or related nodes with its ability, and characteristics. It is simple to provide predictable packet transmission in a specific direction. The theoretical evaluation and simulation consequences shows that our proposed optimized EE-OHRA reduces general energy consumption, reduces end-to-end put off, increases packet shipping ratio and achieves maximum network lifetime.

Paraffinic crude oil flows freely at higher temperature, as temperature reduces it tends to crystallize, or deposit around the down hole tubular, or at the face of producing zones in the well bore regions. It results in complete blockage of crude passage and possesses severe production problems causing huge economic loss. This problem is overcome by using microbes as tertiary oil recovery and this technique termed as Microbial Enhanced Oil Recovery (MEOR). Oil rich in paraffin is degraded with Paraffin Degrading Bacteria (PDB) so as to mitigate deposition of paraffin in well tubing‘s, decreasing the pour point of oil and increase its flow rate. Wells in which production of oil decreases are treated with bacterial culture so as to enhance oil recovery from the field. Laboratory studies in Indian Institute of Reservoir Studies (IRS) at Ahmedabad showed significant reduction in the viscosity and the pour point of the crude oil.

A method for weighted pseudo-random test generation based on a deterministic test set is described. The main advantages of the method described over existing methods are: (1) only three easily generated weights-0, 0.5 and 1-are used, (2) a minimum number of shift register cells is used, thus leading to minimal hardware for Built-In-Test applications, and (3) the weights are selected to allow the same coverage of target faults attained by the deterministic test set, to be attained by weighted random patterns. The method is suitable for both combinational and sequential circuits. Experimental results are provided for ISCAS-85 benchmark circuits. Since accumulators are commonly found in current VLSI chips, this scheme can be efficiently utilized to drive down the hardware of BIST pattern generation, as well. Comparisons with previously presented schemes indicate that the proposed scheme compares favorably with respect to the required hardware.

High levels of cholesterol in the blood is a serious problem because it is one of the risk factors for various non-communicable diseases such as heart disease, stroke and diabetes mellitus. The results of Riskesdas in 2013 the proportion of Indonesian population with higher than normal cholesterol levels is higher in women at 39.6% compared to men at 30%. Some of the factors that influence total cholesterol levels are high-fiber diets, high-fat diets, smoking habits, gender, obesity and physical activity. Bamboo shoots are shoots (young stems) of bamboo plants. The high antioxidant, potassium and srat content in bamboo shoots can help reduce levels of bad cholesterol in the body without reducing the amount of good cholesterol. This study aims to look at the effect of bamboo shoot consumption on reducing blood cholesterol levels. The method used is a quasi experiment. Large samples of 30 people who have cholesterol levels more than the normal range (high). Blood samples are taken at night 10-15 minutes before consuming bamboo shoots and 9-10 hours of fasting after consuming bamboo shoots. Data were then analyzed using paired t tests. The results showed that blood cholesterol levels before shoot consumption showed the mean value ± standard deviation: 248.11 ± 24.42. Meanwhile, after consumption, bamboo shoots decreased with mean ± standard deviation: 214.87 ± 35.47. Statistical test results with paired sample t test showed that the value of p = 0.000 (p <0.05) which means that there are significant changes in blood cholesterol levels before bamboo shoot consumption and after bamboo shoot consumption. From the results it can be concluded that there is an effect of bamboo shoot consumption on blood cholesterol levels.

An intelligent framework for Joint Data Hiding and Compression on image has been proposed in this paper. The proposed framework is the combination of the schemes such as data hiding, compression and image in-painting. In this intelligent framework, we have used an existing technique called Side Match Vector Quantization (SMVQ) and the proposed Intelligent Fast Local Image In-painting(IFLII) techniques to overcome the drawbacks in the existing system. In addition, we have used the multi agents for data hiding, compression and in-painting process in this proposed intelligent framework. In implementation, a cover image is taken first and is divided into blocks of n x n matrices. The topmost and the leftmost blocks are compressed using Vector Quantization (VQ). Other remaining blocks are called residual blocks and are embedded with the secret data. Simultaneously Side Match Vector Quantization (SMVQ) and prediction are applied to this current block and neighboring pixels. If prediction error exists then VQ technique is applied again, else SMVQ technique is applied to that block. Embedding is adjusted by incorporating the fast local Image In-painting. Finally, the image decompression process takes place and then the embedded secret bits are extracted. The experimental results show the efficiency of the proposed intelligent frameworks. The proposed framework achieves better performance in the way of capability of data hiding, compression ratio and quality of decompression.

The experimental investigation and numerical simulation of the behaviour of built-up Cold-Formed Steel (CFS) I beams with diagonal reinforcing bars welded to the web in order to restrain web buckling is presented in this paper. Experiments were conducted on three types of CFS beams. In the first case, no diagonal bars were present, in the second case diagonal bars were welded to the web in the shear zones and in the third case diagonal bars were provided in the shear zones and flexure zone. The simply supported beams were subjected to two-point loading. Load carrying capacity, deflection, strain and failure parameters like lateral torsional buckling and local buckling were examined. It is found that the beam with diagonal bars in the shear zone and flexural zone had greater load carrying capacity and underwent lesser strain than the other two cases. Also, numerical analysis using ANSYS WORKBENCH was done to find the flexural behaviour of CFS beams with diagonal web reinforcing bars which concurred with the test results. The study also proves that Finite Element (FE) modeling can be relied upon as a sustainable alternative to expensive experimental testing

Multicasting in mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs) is a technique to transfer data to the group of destinations from single or group of source nodes. However, the devices in the MANETs move randomly in the network leading to frequent topology changes. The link breakages occurring due to constant changing topology reduce the performance of the network. This paper presents a multicasting routing protocol that focuses on repairing the local links in an energy efficient way. The proposed Modified Local Link Repair (MLLR) multicasting routing protocol rebuilds the link from the uplink node to the node next to the downlink node. The performance of the procedure has been compared based on routing overhead, throughput, packet delivery ratio and remaining energy of the network. It shows improvement in Energy consumption and throughput with the existing algorithm. Proposed algorithm is showing to reduce 34.78% average End to End Delay and decreasing 83.52% routing overhead with comparison to existing algorithm The proposed protocol has shown improvement over the existing EOD-LLR multicasting routing protocol.

The recognition of a mind cancer and its grouping from present day image modalities is an essential worry, yet a tedious and dreary work was achieved by radiologists or medical bosses. The precision of identification and tumor stages grouping done by radiologists is relied upon their knowledge just, so the PC supported innovation is imperative to help with the conclusion exactness. In this research, a tumor portion is segmented from the brain image by using Adjusted Kernel-Based Fuzzy C-Means (MKFCM) algorithm. The input images are resized like 256×256 in the pre - processing stage. The pre-processed MRI image segmented by MKFCM, which is a stretchy top ML system to locate the object in a difficult pattern. Next, Hybrid Feature Extraction (HFE) performed on the segmented image to increase the feature subsets. The feature selection (FS) process was performed by Kernel Nearest Neighbour (KNN) based Genetic Algorithm (GA) in order to acquire the best feature values. The best feature values given to the Naive Bayes (NB) classifier as an input, which is classified into Meningioma, Glioma and Pituitary regions in the MRI images. The performance of proposed KNN-GA-FS-NB method is validated by T1-WCEMRI dataset.

High school selection is a process to choose the best schools that appropriate for prospective students based on their competence and skills. Most prospective students cannot determine the appropriate school selection because students need guidance and consult with their Guidance and Counseling teacher to get advice. Later, most researchers focus on the implementation of data mining to analyze the student data of high education, namely university or polytechnic, so this research conduct to find for previous data patterns. The main objective of this research is to propose a recommender system to select the appropriate schools based on the apriori method in data mining. The recommender system considers previous knowledge from the dataset and extracts the dataset to be training data, then using the apriori method to determine the schools’ selection. The recommender system is implemented in a web-based system. The web-based system evaluates using the system usability scale to get the user response based on user experiences and user-friendliness.

The still increasing high-level emissions of CO2 around the world is underlining the importance of wider adoption of renewable energy. With the advancement of new technology and development of organic solar cell, the price of photovoltaic is going down and encouraging large implementation of photovoltaic system. Due to the implementation of solar panels in locations that are often remote, it is very difficult to monitor physically. The traditional method of monitoring solar panels using PLC or SCADA systems is not cost effective. Therefore, with the development of advanced technology, we developed a data acquisition system using Internet of Things (IoT) technology. It is a new cost effective technology used to monitor organic solar cell using open source tools such as Integrated development environment and Thinkspeak. Thinkspeak is an IoT platform incorporated in Matlab that provides an environment to monitor solar panels parameters. This paper proposes a system for real-time data acquisition and remote monitoring of organic solar cells (OSC) incorporated in buildings facades for stability analysis. The system consists of embedded systems and sensors to monitor organic solar cells parameters such as current and voltage and weather conditions such as humidity, temperature and irradiation. The result of the proposed system has shown an efficient method for monitoring solar panels with an ability to display and store data in cloud. Also, during four months of observation the result has shown some preliminary delamination in the organic solar cell with a decrease in output power.
